Only 1 out of 10 people do this…

Shocking stat! Only 1 out of every 10 people eat enough of this food group …

Even though these foods help keep your heart healthy … your skin glowing … your energy high … your hormones balanced … and your tummy happy.

PLUS, they can also help boost your mood AND manage your weight, while fending off serious diseases like obesity, diabetes, and more.

Sounds pretty miraculous, am I right?

In case you haven’t guessed it yet … it’s fruits and veggies. But for whatever reason, most of us don’t get enough of them!

Every day, it’s recommended that we eat:

  • 1.5 to 2 cups of fruits
  • 2 to 3 cups of vegetables

If you’re in the 90% of people who don’t eat enough fruits and veggies, here are a few simple ways to sneak more into your diet:

  • Make it a point to eat a salad for lunch
  • Add greens (spinach, kale, etc.) to sauces, soups, or stews
  • Automatically add a side of veggies every time you eat dinner (tip: frozen veggies make this easy and budget-friendly!)
  • Add them to your casseroles (even meatloaf – spinach, peppers, pumpkin, etc.)
  • Eat fruit with your breakfast
